  • "Was KB2506143 was the prerelease version of "Windows Management Framework 3.0"? So, if I never installed it, I should not have to uninstall it?"

    Yes, and the other one (KB250146) was for the pre-release for Server 2008 SP2.

    In your case, if you never installed any of the CTP V.3 releases, you must skip this step, because the update isn't installed!

    WMF 3.0 is the umbrella name for the new Powershell, WMI, and WinRM releases.

    From the doc:

    "Windows Management Framework 3.0 contains Windows PowerShell 3.0, WMI & WinRM. "

  • Thanks.
     
    That's slightly more complicated than I expected it to be.
     
    If I have never installed any version of "Windows Management Framework 3.0",
    can I just ignore that step that involves uninstalling "Windows Management Framework 3.0" ?
    I don't see it if I use Control Panel to show a list of Windows Updates.
     
    Was KB2506143 was the prerelease version of "Windows Management Framework 3.0"?
    So, if I never installed it, I should not have to uninstall it?

  • Thanks so much!   I just don't want to lose my access to PowerShell, so I wanted to be sure.
